The New York Knicks continue to be an ailing organization. Another change in leadership is the latest attempt to try and revive the organization.
The Knicks are currently 13th in the Eastern Conference standings with a 17-37 record. Head coach Michael Miller certainly isn’t the long-term solution for New York to get things turned around.
Scott Perry, the Knicks’ new General Manager, is likely to make a coaching change at some point – as to when is still unclear. But when Perry decides to make a change, there’s one candidate that seems like the perfect fit.
Kentucky’s John Calipari has long been a name linked to the Knicks – that is, if he were ever to leave the Wildcats and head to the NBA. But current New York forward Kevin Knox – a former Kentucky player – doesn’t see it happening.
“Cal, he loves Kentucky,” Knox said, via Knicks Videos. “He runs that state. The fans love him there. He’s got the basketball program on lock there. … He really doesn’t want to leave.”
Knox knows better than most as to whether or not Calipari would leave Kentucky for the Knicks.
He seems pretty confident Coach Cal is staying put with the Wildcats:

Obviously, things could change. But with the college basketball season heating up, Coach Cal most likely isn’t even thinking about leaving Kentucky.
